The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Mercedes-Benz S-Class goes from exclusive to earth-friendly to exotically fast-in just a couple hundred thousand dollars. The 2010 Porsche Panamera weds astonishing performance to remarkable interior space, but its styling doesn't quite gel.
